Hello, Nixxes/EM -

As you can see in this thread:

There are many PC Thief fans who have purchased the game but wish to turn off The Cloak effect by altering the ini/configuration files in the Thief game directory. This includes both the black, swirling haze effect around the edges of the screen and also the flashing white light as you move from dark to light areas while playing.

Can someone please inform us on the best way to do this? Thanks in advance for the help.

They have bigger issues than your problems with the cloak. Like sound issues on all platforms, crashes on all platforms, data loss on all platforms.

I am sure they have enough resources to solve multiple problems at once. Expecially when one of them probably only requires to tell us which ini settings to tweak.

I can smell the river from here!

If it was easy to do, I'm sure they would have added it to the menu options. Unless there's some reason they're not permitted to.

I know it's not top of the list but none the less, I'd like to be able to turn these options too.

Poor things. For me the only problem in the game - damn Cloak effect.
